Nothing has been changed, in a positive way.We had the most popular Momiji course for lunch, mixture of various seasonal seafood and veggies. Each item is respectively and exquisitely fried in front of... More

The restaurant ‘Tentei’ is located 2 minutes walk from the Ginza downstairs and is fairly easy to find. If you’re luck to get a reservation (they’re not open on Sunday) you are in for wonderful food.

We ate lunch here. If you are used to greasy, soggy tempura, this place will be a revelation.

Here you can get an excellent lunch assortment for about JPY 3000-3500 ($30-35) plus any drinks. Most of the restaurant is counter seating;... More

I often visit here whenever I want to eat Tempura. I usually order Tempura couse for lunch. This includes all kinds of tempura: shrimp, seasonal veggi, and fresh fish.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
